Donation leads to scholarships at GCCC

A recent donation from LV Petroleum will allow Garden City Community College to offer five $1,000 annual scholarships to graduates of Garden City Achieve to attend GCCC this fall.
“Our CEOs understand the challenges and importance of higher education. Therefore, LV Petroleum provided the scholarship funds to Garden City Community College to give back to the community and provide some financial relief for students who need it,” Quyntyn Johnson, Senior VP of Operations at LV Petroleum, said. “Our mission is to combine knowledge with development experience and operational excellence in which we feel Garden City Community College can provide this through their education system.”

LV Petroleum recently acquired and remodeled the travel center at 1265 Solar Ave in
Garden City, now named Garden City TA. Johnson said education is important to LV
Petroleum so having an education system within the same community as one of its Travel Center sites allows LV to support the next generation’s path to success.

“Supporting Garden City Community College will allow us to form strong bonds within the community and provide career opportunities, work experience and steppingstones for the students of Garden City to reach their ultimate end goal,” he said.
Five $1,000 annual scholarships will be available for Garden City Achieve graduates planning to
attend GCCC in Fall 2023.

“We are extremely honored at GC Achieve to receive the LV Petroleum Scholarships for our students to attend Garden City Community College. We are excited to partner with LV Petroleum moving forward and continuing our great relationship with GCCC,” Lucas Sullivan, Principal of GC Achieve, said.
Dr. Ryan Ruda, GCCC President, echoed the relationship between LV Petroleum and GCCC.

“We are excited and appreciative of this new opportunity with LV Petroleum,” he said. “From the very
beginning of meeting and working with LV Petroleum administration and staff, they have embraced the community and the community college, fully supporting education and student success. This new scholarship opportunity enhances access and affordability, key components at GCCC.”
The 2023/2024 Scholarship Application is open now. For scholarship questions, contact the GCCC Financial Aid Office at 620-276-9519 or finaid@gcccks.edu.
